8.31.14

Taking a break from Arcade sneak peeks to post something different. :D

I felt like being a forest fairy and the Little Pan people from MishMish at the current round of Collabor88 made perfect little additions:

Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.

Keeping it short and sweet…holiday weekend and I don’t feel like doing much :P

Stockholm & Lima – The Arcade

Another Arcade sneak peek today.

I had the pleasure of photographing the entire Rustic Barn Party set from Stockholm & Lima available for The Arcade – September 1st.

Stockholm & Lima - Rustic Holiday Barn

The barn is one of the rare items ( the other rares being a fully color change version of the commons ) and I really love this build. The barn includes animated mesh blowing curtains, doors that open and close as well as exterior lights that turn on and off. It is also materials enabled.

You can see the animated mesh curtains here: ( please choose the option at the top after clicking the link to view it in the MP4 format as the regular GIF looks quite terrible quality wise….but it’s just a simple screen cap, no fancy editing ) Animated Mesh Curtains.

In addition to the barn there are colored ” collections ” to win to decorate for barn parties :D

I am using the Festive color set in my photos and everything shown is part of the arcade gacha set.
(table, chairs, hay seats, ribbon candles and lantern lights).

Barn Party

You can see all the sets here – on the Stockholm & Lima flickr – and be sure to check out The Arcade when it opens <3

Glam Affair – Skye for Arcade

Arcade is approachinggggg :o

I have seen lots of cute previews in the Arcade Flickr group lately but today I am showing off the new Glam Affair skin – Skye.

Glam Affair - Skye

The above photo is in my favorite make-up option – it’s one of the commons. I did edit this photo some, so the rest will be raw shots.

There are 12 commons, all in the Asia skin tone. Each comes with 8 brow options as well as a no brow option. I am using the no brow options in ALL of my photos because I love (and am using) the universal eyebrows that were released in the store with the Rose skin line.

In regards to rares, there are 5. 3 in the Jamaica tone and 2 in the Pearl tone. Shown below:

The Arcade will open on September 1st, you can keep up to date with stuff on the Official Website, or Flickr Group. <3

I am still weeding through all the things I picked up at C88….weeks later >.>
However I set up the new Mudhoney set, and fell in love with the new dress from Pixicat, sooo.. today’s picture happened <3

8.21.14

I also really like the new Tableau Vivant hair from The Fantasy Collective. It comes with a hat, but I opted to use it alone.
TFC event just opened yesterday, lots of neat ” voodoo” themed things – so make sure to check it out.

I have been pretty much in love with the Aphrodite Dress from Atomic that is available at C88 this month.
After waiting what felt like forever and a day to get in to C88 – I finally got it <3

The first step is the one you believe in.

It’s super girly and cute, sooo… had to go full on Princess for it :D

Just a quick post – I have a few in the works as I have gotten behind again >.<

I <3 the new “NachoBitch” hair from Spellbound though, mostly because it comes with a cute cat beanie.

I am also wearing the new Artemis skin from Glam Affair available at Collabor88.
You can see it closer here:

I use the universal eyebrows that I got from the main store just because I like them but the default brows on this skin are nice too :P

I have been super busy lately, had to get a few events done for my own store *bangs head against the wall* but they are mostly finished now. Soooo…back to blogging all the things. <3

8.8.14

Been on a kitty kick lately and this tummy tank from AlterEgo was too cute to pass up.

I am also using a new skin in the above photo. It’s still growing on me but it’s one of my new favorites. You can pick it up, or demo it from Lara Hurley at the Uber event.

Credits now, and off to lunch.
